The Dark Fairytale Page is a woman in a sleeveless dress of black, or maybe midnight blue. She kneels on the ground in a forest, with a red-eyed crow on her shoulder. In her cupped palms rests a pentacle, a glowing globe lit from within. Her reddish hair and the golden pentacle are the only colour in the dark landscape, in which more crows fly up above.
The connection of this Page to the earth is clear, as she kneels upon it in a wooded glade. She also has a feeling of innocence and wonder. Is she actively placing her energy, her hopes for future prosperity, into the ground in the form of the pentacle? Or is it something she has dug up from under one of the trees, discovering treasure in the most unlikely of places?
Is she clinging to her earth-bound existence, wanting to experience all the new potential it offers? Or does she feel weighed down and trapped by her own materiality? Is she coming face-to-face with the physical reality of mortality?
In both versions I get the sense of discovery, of exploring the material world and its possibilities. However, the Dark Angel seems sad, almost tragic, while the Dark Fairytale Page has a feeling of being spiritually connected and full of youthful curiosity and awe.
I'm hoping to tap into that sense of astonished delight today, as my Dear One and I have our second go at indoor skydiving! I'm so looking forward to it, after the excitement and adrenaline of our first flight. This time, I shall buy the DVD of our experience and share it with you all later ;D
I am grateful for the ability to fly!
